Blue Monday's ~ Fritatta di Verdura

I'm glad my blue teapot was in the photo ~ So I can post this on Blue Monday.
This is our traditional sunday morning breakfast. ~ Call it a 'clean out the fridge fritatta'. Fritatta di Verdura in Italiano . . . doesn't that sound so much better? It does when David Rocco says it.

So . . . in cleaning out the fridge I found ~ A hand full of spinach, 4 mushrooms, diced onion, bell pepper and pepperoni. 6 eggs and some parmesean cheese. This is his recipe, although I make it my own from week to week.
Fritatta di Verdura
5 large eggs
thinly slice 1 potato
thinly slice 1 red pepper,
thinly slice 1 onion
1 cup freshly grated Grana Padano cheese
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
In a bowl, beat eggs with freshly grated cheese. Salt & pepper to taste.
Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan. Add veggies.
Cook for 5 minutes, or until vegetables are soft.
(consider that some things will need to cook a little longer than others. Add fresh spinach toward the end)
Pour egg mixture into frying pan. With a fork, evenly distribute egg mixture.
Cook over medium head for approximately 3 - 4 minutes without stirring.
Place under the broiler to finish the top.

Bene, Bene, Bene
Don't forget to check in at Smiling Sally for more blues.
y'all enjoy~
